I had a piano lesson today. That was okay. Obviously I couldn’t practise while I was away, and I’ve had under a week to get back in the swing of things, so I felt like I was playing terribly. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was playing terribly compared to usual. I was on the verge of tears at multiple points throughout the forty-five minute lesson, the hyper-sensitive thing that I am, but my piano teacher is just such a star. She is so wholly positive, which is exactly what someone like me needs. I supply the negativity by myself, so I need a supportive teacher. Gah, I’m so needy. It pains me.
My parents and sister went into Lewes today to get the last few bits of her secondary school uniform for September, so my brother and I had the house to ourselves for a few hours. Which amounted to both of use immediately rushing to computers and staying there for the duration of their excursion. I watched episodes 3-7 of Sword Art Online, which is still friggin’ awesome. Kirito and Asuna are so cool. Also Egil. I wish they would stop providing episodic and apparently completely disposable girls for Kirito to interact with, but they’re cute as hell, so maybe I don’t mind? There’s a whole lot of ‘damsel in distress’-ing involved, but Asuna is such a badass that it clearly isn’t a rampantly sexist show. Kirito’s masculinity isn’t really a part of it, so much as his wisdom and compassion, which are hardly alpha-man traits in television. He just happens to be a guy. That’s how it feels. Anyway, point is, I love it.
Oh God, I fangirled again, I’m so sorry. I’ll just go now.
